Hello everyone.

So, I have ran across a problem and was wondering if you could help me out. Here is the story,

I went over to my brother's house and found this cat coming up his drive way. He said that the cat has been coming over quite a bit and that he would love to see him in a loving home, so, I took him. I was in love with his color and his markings, so I did a little research and after throughly looking at him, he resembled a lot like a Bengal. I did a little more research and after watching his personality explode, I relized that not only did he look the part, he also act the part.

Anyways, I have few pictures of him and was wondering, since you have experience with Bengals, if he has the traits. Even if he isn't one, I still love him deeply.

Based on these photographs, I do not see any bengal in this kitty. I hope you will check "lost and found" pet pages because it's very common for an outdoor cat with an owner to go roaming and become friendly with the neighbors -- even eating cat food if the neighbor offers. It doesn't mean they don't have a home. I would hate to think you may have catnapped a kitty (which illegal where I live). Your town may have requirements that if you take a cat, you must contact your local Animal Control and file a report of a found cat. The owner has 30 days to reclaim the cat. It's not just as simple as taking a cat in. A woman in the next county was arrested and charged with stealing a cat. That's not to say that you can't keep the kitty, but you must attempt to locate an owner, if there is one. There are probably Facebook pages in your area for lost and found pets that you can join and post pictures of this kitty.

Also, take the kitty to a vet to be checked for a microchip! Vets scan for free.

Wish there were more photos but from what I can see if could possibly be a Bengal cross.

It's a very unusual colour and I can see some Bengal Type marking on top of the paws. Possibly a Snow Bengal.

What colour are the eyes sorry forgot to look. Can you post more photos of the whole body from different angles and also with the tail?

Just had another quick look and there does appear to be some marbling effect on the body too but it's hard to tell from the photos.

The pictures aren't great, but I would say you most likely have a tabby moggie with some siamese lineage. Possibly some Bengal blood in there somewhere, but hard to say. It appears the cat has pure white paws, which is a dead giveaway that it isn't a Bengal. Very handsome cat, though, and bravo to you for rescuing him.
